Xavier Sneed made Kansas State basketball fans sweat, but he will return to Manhattan for his senior season. Sneed announced his decision just over an hour before the NBA Draft deadline.
“Obviously we are thrilled to know that Xavier will be part of our basketball program for his senior season,” said Kansas State head coach Bruce Weber. “He has the ability to be not only the best swing man in the Big 12, but also in the nation. There is no doubt that he will be our team leader. From my conversations with him, I believe the NBA experience has been a valuable one for him. We have received positive feedback from several NBA scouts about his upside and his future. I know that he will use these experiences to help motivate himself to continue his development as a player, have a special senior season and leave a positive legacy in our program. I also know that his family will be excited and proud to have him finish his business degree at K-State.”
Earlier this month, Sneed worked out with the Sacramento Kings. He averaged 10.6 points per game and 5.5 rebounds as a junior with K-State.
